Mizzou Head Coach Bryan Blitz on Jessica:
"Jessica's explosive ability and versatility as an attacking player will help her be a success in our system."

Club coach Jason Kelly:
"Jessica is an outstanding student-athlete who will bring a great deal of versatility to Mizzou. She is physically strong enough to dual and distributes in central midfield, is quick enough to shred outside defenders as a wide forward and is tactically astute enough to attack from a deeper defensive position. Deadly at set pieces, she is an asset on all dead-ball situations and is a threat to the opponent's goal in open play from outside and inside the box. The sister of Jasmine Johnson and daughter of Ron Johnson (Oregon football), Jessica comes from athletic stock and will look to make an immediate impact for the tigers in 2014."
